§ 37. Mr. Simon Hughes
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has made to the Government of Iran regarding executions of political prisoners there.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
The reports of executions are a matter of grave concern. We have consistently condemned such violations of human rights in Iran. We co-sponsored the resolution on human rights in Iran which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 8 December.
